I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
The devil’s objective is to distract you and get you off course. When you are in the perfect will of God, there are blessings of great joy and peace. So when you get off course your life is not full of joy and peace.
We must realize that the devil desires to see you suffer but God desires to see you prosper. In order to stay focused and to stay on track you must keep your guard up. You must be aware of the schemes of the devil and know that he is spiritually attacking you.
With the strength of God you can stay on track and in God’s will. The Apostle Paul knew the reality of the struggle and said, “I keep pressing on!” That is what we should do.
Keep pressing on toward the goal of the prize. The ultimate prize is to be in the presence of God. When we are in God’s will we are fully in His presence.
What are some of the things that distract you from doing what God has called you to do? Can you make any changes? Sometimes we just need a good reminder and spiritual check-up to get things right again.
Hopefully you are right where you need to be and doing exactly what God has called you to do. Praise God if you are pressing on. Never lose hope and always remember that many people before you have been right where you are and have come out on the bright side.
Lord, keep me in your will. Your will be done here on earth as it is in Heaven. Give me courage and strength to press on.
